DD3 born on Wednesday night but milk has yet to arrive and she is very hungry. I am putting her on the breast every 2 hours and have given some ff today. Sure it had arrived by now for my other dcs and was very obvious when it had 'arrived'. Any advice or thoughts on bringing it on - thank you!
Hi THisisYesterday, I followed your advice and have just fed seemingly constantly. There has still been no milk in sensation, no tingling or let down but I seem to be producing milk - plenty of nappies to change today, so I think Organic is right. The midwife also came today and dd3 has only lost a tiny amount of birthweight so I need to have confidence that the 'udders' feeling may not happen ths time around but I can still do it. Thanks for the advice.
With dd I had the hot, engorged, rock hard, leaking thing.
This time (ds is 3wo), my milk came in with no pain or engorgement. He lost a couple of ounces and has gained 2lbs already. I assume he's just more efficient than dd. No engorged breasts and v v little leaking.
